Roger Federer looking up

Don’t worry Roger Federer fans, the 20-time Grand Slam winner will continue playing until 2020 at least as he his participation in the 2020 Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships has been confirmed.

Federer enjoyed a historic week in Dubai as he lifted an eighth trophy in the Middle Eastern country to become only the second player after Jimmy Connors to win 100 ATP Tour singles titles.

However, there is constant speculation about his future as at the age of 37 everyone knows he doesn’t have too many more years left in the sport.

Federer himself has in the past said that he doesn’t know yet when he will call it a day and it appears that day won’t be in the next 12 months as he has signed up for next year’s event in Dubai.

“We congratulate Roger Federer on his fantastic achievement in winning 100 titles, and winning here in Dubai for the eighth time, more than any other player,” Colm McLoughlin, executive vice-chairman and CEO of Dubai Duty Free, said.

“It is remarkable that his first title here came as long ago as 2003, and we look forward to welcoming both Federer and our ladies champion Belinda Bencic again in 2020.”
